ALASKAN POSITIONS OPEN
FOR MICIIIG AN GRAD UTES
Sparkling with clever comedy, and
gay with tuneful music and pictur-
esque costumes, the first performance
of the tenth annual junior girls' play,
"The Treasure of Toule," given last.
night in honor of the women of 1914,
scored a decided success. 4
The play, a comedy in two acts, writ-
ten by Louise F. Markley, '15,was char-
acterized by a clever plot, full or love
and adventure in southern France, and
was successfully interpreted by the
acting. From the time the curtain rose
on the unique setting of the first act,
a room in the Inn Cheval d'Or, until
the last encore, not a dull moment
Alice Lloyd as "Paul," the son of a
poverty stricken noble house, and Ro-
maine Bramwell, as "Suzanne," re-
ceived much applause for their beau-
tiful love song,"Castles, Fairy Castles,"
written by Helen Malcomson and Vera
Hertha Hartwig, as "Francois Ver-
on," the inn-keeper, deserves special
commendation for her realistic inter-
pretation of the role.
Lillian Wright, as Fanchon, the flirt,
made one of the hits of the evening
with her clever "Pit-Pat" song. Mary
Lewis, as the pirate chief, Helen Mal-
comson as "Jean," the village black-
smith, Marcia Munsell as the gypsy
fortune teller, and Elizabeth Mason as
Jacqueline, were also worthy of praise.
Among the choruses, the pirate chorus
led by Mary Lewis, as the chief, and
Honora Fogerty as lieutenant, was the
most popular, closely seconded by the
dainty convent maids' chorus.
Most of the music was written by
Earl V. Moore, who acted as musical
The play will be presented again
Thursday afternoon, April 2, preced-
ing the women's banquet.

SINGLE HIT GAME
Ferguson Holds Blue Team to One flit
in Five Sessions, Against
BARIBE AS PITCHING UNSTEADY
Ferguson, one of the recruit pitchers
who is battling for a berth on the south-
ern squad, yesterday held the Blue
team to one hit in five innings, and de-
feated Baribeau, veteran hurler, 6 to 0.
While the performance of the young-
ster was a creditable one, the defeat
of the Blue team was only in a small
part the fault of the Varsity hurler
who was pitching for them. Baribeau
yielded three hits in the first inning,
and the soaring disposition of the Blue
infield. still more substantially aided
in netting the Maize four runs.
For the next three innings Baribeau
let but ten men face him, but in the
last round his support again went sky-
ward, and without a hit, the Maize
gained two more runs. But one of the
six runs against Baribeau was earned.
Development of the X-ray plate of
Baer's injured finger shows that there
was no fracture, and Lundgren expects
the veteran will be in shape by the end
of the week.
The teams lined up yesterday as fol-
lows: Maize-Ferguson, p; Hippler, c;
Howard, lb; Lavans, 2b; Baker, ss;
Shivel, 3b; Graham, lf; Sheehy, cf;

NO SPRING TRIP THIS YEAR
FOR MECHANICAL ENGINEERS
For the first time in nearly ten years,
there will be no spring trip of mechan-
ical engineers this year. The 2,000
mile trip through the east which had
been planned, was cancelled yesterday
because not enough men had signed
up to make the trip worth while. Only
nine students had signified their inten-
tions of going, and the majority of
these will probably go on the trip of
the electrical engineers, which includ-
es stops at the majority of points of in-
terest, which the mechanicals had hop-
ed to visit.
